SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Tech reporter Gabe Slate went to Best Buy Tuesday to show what gadgets are hot this year for students.
Livescribe 3 Smartpen transfers all your handwritten notes to your device. It will take your sloppy handwriting, and turn it into clear, crisp type text ready for studying at a later date.
It also comes with a built-in microphone, so you can record everything the teacher said during class. So, if you miss anything, you can go back and listen to the lesson.
Bluetooth keyboards are a great accessory. They come in all shapes, sizes, and prices. They turn your phone or tablet into a more productive machine, something you could actually use for school.
With the full QWERTY keyboard, it’s a lot easier to type out notes, do homework, and write out papers.
And there’s also the Epson Mobile Printer Workforce 100.
Fitbit smart bands are popular with students looking to stay in shape through the school year, using it for step counting and sleep tracking.. It also can be rigged to display incoming calls you are getting, so you can see who is calling you during class.
This wireless mouse is a great accessory. They work on most surfaces, great for homework on the go, and one less cable to worry about it.
Don’t forget an external hard drive. You have to back up all your school work throughout the year. Nothing worse than losing everything when your computer crashes.
And Bluetooth wireless headphones are big this year, great for listening to music between classes or drowning out noise when studying. And again, one less cable to worry about.
